1982 Porsche 924 Turbo
Rare car recently re-commissioned at considerable cost following many years stored in a barn; considerable history; fresh MOT
This well-loved 932 (RHD) Series 2 924 Turbo was delivered new in Germany through Porsche dealer Tolke & Fischer on 26th March 1982 to Capt. R M Cogar.
He kept the car with him through various postings in Germany in the early ‘80s. There are a host of invoices and 27 service stamps, plus 7 additional for brake fluid and coolant changes across the Porsche network overseas, prior to its first UK dealer visits at Dick Lovett, Swindon in 1985, 86, and 87.
The car has a colossal history, highlights include the original purchase order listing the fitted options of a rear wash/wiper, tinted glass and 2nd mirror. The speedo was to be MPH and the car RHD and finished in Mauritius Blue with ‘BH’ cloth. The first V5C on file shows it to have been UK registered on 31st October 1984 and declared manufactured 1982. Oddly, the later V5’s on file show it as first registered December 1992 – evidently incorrect!
Purchased from us by our vendor in winter 2019, they have gone right through the car investing hugely in time and financial outlay, but the results speak for themselves. Thoroughly recommissioned, the works were undertaken in-house with some specialist aspects outsourced including engine and fuel system repairs by 924 specialists Woolies Workshop, new dash, refurbished wheels, new tyres, overhauled brakes and suspension and a complete re-spray some of which is documented in the history file.
Other service record highlights include replacement of the cylinder head by Dick Lovett Porsche in March 1988 at 35,933 miles and a factory recall notice from November 1985. A documented change of speedometer and milometer by Dick Lovett Porsche in July 1999 at 73,858 miles and most recent major annual services by Oak Tree Garage of Devon in 2002, 2003 and 2004 which total some £3,000 are also listed. In addition, there is a second duplicate service book in English, fully stamped plus useful owner’s manuals.
There is sufficient German and UK history to suggest the total mileage of c84,000 is correct (now showing 10,178). The car has 15 old MOTs on file plus the current valid until September 2022 with just 2 minor advisories recorded for the service brake binding on both sides.
Highly sought after and collectible, the 924 Turbo has a market demand all of its own with prices climbing year on year with so few available, particularly with low mileage and ownership of this restored example.
